4.   Cancellation of certain commercial traveller’s licenses under the Trades Licensing Act

   (1) Whenever the Minister has reason to believe that the holder of a commercial traveller’s license is resident in a specified country, he shall cause notice to be given to the holder that he proposes to cancel the license unless, within such period as may be specified in the notice, the holder shows to the satisfaction of the Minister that he is not resident in a specified country.

   (3) If the holder of a commercial traveller’s license to whom a notice under sub-section (1) has been given fails, within the period specified in the notice, to show to the satisfaction of the Minister that he is not resident in a specified country, the Minister shall, by Gazette notice, cancel his license and such license shall thereupon be null and void.

   (4) The Minister shall cause to be paid to the holder of a commercial traveller’s license which has been cancelled under the provisions of this section, a sum calculated by multiplying the amount of the fee paid in respect of that license by one-twelfth of the number of completed months for which that license would have continued to be valid, had it not been cancelled.

   (5) For the purposes of this section, “commercial traveller’s license” means a commercial traveller’s license granted or renewed under the provisions of the Trades Licensing Act.

   (2) For the purpose of enforcing the provisions of this section, the Licensing Authority under the Trades Licensing Act shall, on application being made for the grant or renewal of a commercial traveller’s license, require the applicant to satisfy him, by the production of such evidence as he may require, that, if the license is granted or renewed, the holder of the license will not be an individual person, firm or company resident in a specified country.

 

6.   Issue of foreign commercial traveller’s license

   (1) The Minister may, on application being made in such form as he may require, and on payment of the fee prescribed by sub-section (5), grant a license, to be styled a foreign commercial traveller’s license, to any individual person, firm or company resident in a specified country.

   (2) The grant or refusal of a license under this section shall be at the absolute discretion of the Minister, and the Minister may, on the grant of any such license, attach such terms and conditions thereto as he thinks fit.

   (3) In every license granted under this section, there shall be specified—

      (a)   the name and address of the holder of the license; and

      (b)   the period of the validity of the license; and

      (c)   any terms and conditions attached to the license;

and the license shall be in the form prescribed in the Schedule.

   (4) A license granted under this section shall, subject to the provisions of the license, authorise the carrying on of the business of a commercial traveller for the purposes of the Trades Licensing Act to the same extent as is authorised by a commercial traveller’s license granted under the provisions of that Act.
